An implant is often placed 3 months after a tooth is removed to ensure adequate healing of the implant. However is certain situations when placing Immediate Implants, implants can be placed on the day of tooth removal if on assessment of the site, the conditions of the bone and tooth to removed are favourable.
Placing the implant involves a small, comfortable procedure, usually carried out with a local anaesthetic. The tooth implant is placed in the bone and left to integrate. During the interim period, a transitional fixed bridge or a removable denture is used to close your gap.
For the upper jaw, ideally 6 months healing, and for the lower jaw 3-4 months healing, should be allowed, prior to the placement of the definitive restoration.
This stage involves taking an impression to create a custom made post onto which you final restoration (whether it is a crown or bridge) will be fitted onto. The impression is sent to our ceramist who will create the titanium or ceramic post.
This precision fitting post is securely attached into the implant. The dentist and ceramist then create the final new tooth crown to the desired size shape, shade and cosmetics. The porcelain crown or bridge is made to look like your natural teeth and is fixed into place.

My dental plan included quite intrusive treatment, all of which was carried out with concern for my comfort. Time was taken to insure that I was included in every decision to be made.
Everyone was very friendly and made me feel 'at home'. Thanks to the dentists at this amazing practice!!
